Passenger who heard remarks by Muslim who was removed from plane speaks Arabic, says his comments were Terrorist threats

Published

on

This incident has been widely reported as an incidence of “Islamophobia,” as an ignorant non-Muslim passenger heard Khairuldeen Makhzoomi speaking Arabic and saying “inshallah” and jumped to the conclusion that he must be a terrorist. But in reality, the passenger who heard Makhzoomi speaking to his uncle speaks Arabic, and thus knew everything that he was saying, and thought it was threatening. But by now this story has gone around the world; this salient detail will not.

“Southwest said its crew’s response followed company protocol and federal law, which requires ‘potential threats to civil aviation’ be investigated and reported to law enforcement.” But if those who are wringing their hands over Southwest’s “Islamophobia” get their way, potential threats to civil aviation when they come from Muslims will not be reported.

An update on this story. “Southwest says passenger who overheard college student’s remarks also spoke Arabic,” by Conor Shine, Dallas Morning News, April 18, 2016 (thanks to Occupy Bawl Street):

A Southwest Airlines passenger who overheard a college student’s conversation also spoke Arabic and perceived the comments to be threatening, according to a new Southwest Airlines statement released Monday afternoon.

The new detail sheds light on the removal of 26-year-old Khairuldeen Makhzoomi from an Oakland-bound flight earlier this month. His removal from Flight 4620 gained national attention over the weekend following a story published in The Daily Californian newspaper.

Makhzoomi, an Iraqi refugee and senior at the University of California Berkeley, was removed from an April 6 flight from Los Angeles to Oakland after another passenger told crew she overheard “potentially threatening comments.” Makhzoomi’s comments came during a conversation with his uncle.

Southwest said its crew’s response followed company protocol and federal law, which requires “potential threats to civil aviation” be investigated and reported to law enforcement.

One new detail revealed in the statement is that the woman who overheard Makhzoomi’s comments, which came during a phone conversation with his uncle, also spoke Arabic.

“It was the content of the passenger’s conversation, not the language used, that prompted the report leading to our investigation,” Southwest said in its statement. “Once the report was made, an Arabic-speaking Southwest Manager at LAX participated in the decision to request the passenger leave the aircraft and continue the conversation in the gate area.”

Makhzoomi told The Daily Californian he said goodbye to his uncle by saying “inshallah”, which translates to “if God is willing.” Makhzoomi said he had called his uncle to tell him about a dinner he had attended in Los Angeles the previous day that featured Ban Ki-moon, secretary-general of the United Nations.

After the conversation, Makhzoomi was removed from the plane, searched in front of a crowd of onlookers and questioned by law enforcement agents, including the FBI, according to a report in TheNew York Times. An FBI spokeswoman later confirmed that agents responded to the airport but no threat was found.

Makhzoomi’s ticket was refunded by Southwest and he caught a later flight on Delta Air Lines.

Makhzoomi told The Times he’s not planning to pursue legal action but would like an apology from the company.

Although Southwest’s statement from Monday doesn’t include an apology, it does indicate the airline has tried to contact Makhzoomi without any success.

“We would like the opportunity to speak with Mr. Makhzoomi further about his experience and have reached out to him several times,” the airline said.

There have been at least six cases so far this year of Muslims being removed from flights, according to The Times, including a Muslim passenger who was removed from a Southwest flight in Chicago last week.

Read the full text of Southwest’s latest statement below:

Statement: Flight 4620 from Los Angeles (LAX) to Oakland (OAK) on April 6

A passenger onboard flight 4620 requested that our Crew investigate what were perceived to be threatening comments made by another passenger onboard. Both passengers involved in the situation spoke a shared language, Arabic. Our Crew responded by following protocol, as required by federal law, to investigate and report to law enforcement agencies any potential threat to civil aviation. It was the content of the passenger’s conversation, not the language used, that prompted the report leading to our investigation. Once the report was made, an Arabic-speaking Southwest Manager at LAX participated in the decision to request the passenger leave the aircraft and continue the conversation in the gate area. We provided the passenger an immediate refund of his unused ticket.  Federal law enforcement agents became involved and conducted their own investigation.  We would like the opportunity to speak with Mr. Makhzoomi further about his experience and have reached out to him several times.

We welcome onboard more than a hundred millions Customers each year; and we aim safely to transport each, while maintaining the comfort of all. Safety is our always first focus, and our Employees are trained to make decisions to safeguard the security of our Crews and Customers on every flight. We would not remove a passenger from a flight without a collaborative decision rooted in established procedures. Southwest neither condones nor tolerates discrimination of any kind. Our Company could not survive if we practiced or believed otherwise.  In fact, a cursory view of our workforce, as well as our expansive, multi-cultural Customer base is a reliable indicator that we exalt and appreciate diversity.

BREAKING From Minnesota! ISLAMIC TERROR ATTACK!

Published

on

This is what decades of lax immigration standards and outright anti-American politicians have brought upon our great nation.

We are now getting reports that a former St. Catherine University student has been charged with setting fires on the college’s St. Paul campus.

But where this story really gets terrifying is when we find out what she told police.

According to the official complaint which was filed on Friday, she claimed to have done this because she had been reading about how the U.S. military destroys schools in Iraq or Afghanistan and she felt that she should do exactly the same thing here, to the nation which was generous enough to welcome her, and who knows how many more chain migrants she has brought in with her.

According to documents she also went as far as to say “You guys are lucky that l don’t know how to build a bomb because l would have done that”

The accused is Tnuza Jamal Hassan, 19, of Minneapolis and she was arrested Wednesday afternoon in a campus dorm lounge. I wonder who was paying her tuition. Probably the already overburdened American Tax Payer.

Patrick Nwaneri who’s legal services were retained by Hassan’s family only stated they were at a loss as to why Tnuza did this. A woman who was identified as Hassan’s older sister was in tears outside Hassan’s first court hearing on Friday as she declined to comment on the matter. In addition to her sister, Hassan has a mother in the area, who could not be reached for comment as of Friday’s arraignment.

MINNESOTA MUSLIMS BRUTALLY HONEST: ‘WE WANT SHARIAH’
Street interviews capture on video anti-American, anti-1st Amendment views

The Cedar Riverside section of Minneapolis is home to the University of Minnesota, some tasty ethnic foods and brutally cold winters. It’s also a known hotbed of Islamic terror recruitment.

Al-Shabab, the Islamist group based in Somalia, has had a field day there over the past six or seven years.

Dozens of young Muslims have left the streets of Cedar Riverside, referred to by some Minnesotans as “Little Mogadishu” for its high concentration of Somali refugees, to travel abroad and fight for terrorist groups. Some have joined Somalia’s notorious al-Shabab, which slaughtered 147 Christians at a university in Kenya last month, while others have opted for ISIS in Syria. Their goal is the same – to join their brothers in the fight to establish a Shariah-compliant utopia known as a caliphate.

But one would expect those who walk the streets of this quiet neighborhood to be a bit less fanatical in their views, right?

Let the questions begin

On Friday a camera crew with the David Horowitz Freedom Center released a video posted to Robert Spencer’s blog, Jihad Watch, in which documentary filmmaker Ami Horowitz captures Somali men and women on the streets of Cedar Riverside answering simple questions.

Their answers to questions about Islamic law, American law and issues of peace and freedom were revealing.

Several of the Muslim men told the interviewer it was “easy” to be Muslim in America. They said persecution was non-existent. They’re free to worship as they please.

One Somali-American stood out from the rest.

“This is a free country; that’s the beauty of it. We love America, it’s a great country, freedom of choice, freedom of religion, so we don’t have any issues,” said the neatly dressed man with a sport coat and tie.

Things devolved from there.

One young man with dark sunglasses and a big smile, followed by another in a plaid dress shirt, and another with long hair stuffed under a Brooklyn Nets baseball cap, all said they would prefer to live under Islamic law rather than American law.

“I’m a Muslim. I prefer Shariah law,” the man in the dress shirt said.

“Shariah law, yes,” said another.

“Of course, yeah,” said the one in the Nets baseball cap.

Asked if most of his friends felt the same way, he responded, “Of course if you’re a Muslim, yeah.”

A woman wearing a pink hijab and traditional dress was asked if it’s OK for a father to make his young daughter marry a man of his choice.

“Yeah, yeah, he can, he can. He has the authority, you know, yeah, to do that.”

“How young do you think it is OK?” the interviewer asked.

“Ah, yeah, 15,” she answered.

The youngest person interviewed, a boy who appeared no more than 14 or 15, said it was easy to be a Muslim in his local school. He said he did not experience any persecution being a Muslim in Minneapolis.

He said he would prefer Shariah, however, because it was a much “tighter” society and, therefore, less prone to crime.

“Shariah law, it says that if you steal something, they cut off your hand,” the boy said, making a cutting motion with one hand against the other. “So, basically, they can leave their doors open. Nobody’s going to steal anything because Shariah is so tight. Usually, they don’t do anything. The smallest things usually have big consequences.

Blaspheming the ‘prophet’

Then the questions turned to Islamic blasphemy laws and the controversy with people depicting the Muslim “prophet” Muhammad in cartoons.

“How does that whole thing make you feel?” the interviewer asked.

“That really pisses me off, you know what I mean. I mean, they know it is a button to push,” said the young man in the baseball cap.

“It makes me angry,” said the man in the sunglasses. “Everyone gets like the big freedom. And then, they don’t see that, the freedom that they’re getting is causing a problem. And causing hatreds for other people.”

Would it be better if we made it illegal in America to make fun of the prophet Muhammad?

“Definitely yeah,” he said.

“So in a way, they kind of deserve whatever happens to them?” he is asked.

“Yeah, yeah, every action has a consequence,” the young man in the ball cap said.

“Do you think we should make a law that makes it illegal?”

“That would be better, yeah, that would be better,” said the man in the plaid dress shirt. “To stop, you know, aggression.”

‘I was so upset, so mad’

Then came another Somali man with a beard and a jacket. He was more animated than the others.

“I was so upset, and I was so mad. They insulted our religion. They insulted our prophet, and we couldn’t take it,” he said, shaking his fist and flailing his arms.

“And you shouldn’t be allowed to do that?” the interviewer asked.

“Oh my God, big time, yes!” he answered.

They were then asked if they understood the motivation of people who struck back violently against such depictions of the prophet.

“Yeah, I understand totally where they’re coming from, yeah,” said the young man in the ball cap.

‘Is it right to kill someone who insults the prophet?’

“Yes,” said the bearded man with the animated personality. “Because when you, every day you face frustration. And you know, every day you have, uh, you’re mad, or somebody says that, and you feel hate your soul. You could do anything you wanted. If you committed suicide, you don’t care, because your heart, your heart is telling you, ‘I don’t want to live no more,’ because you couldn’t take that much hate. Or you, you kill someone.”

The interviewer got even more pointed with a reference to Pamela Geller, who hosted the cartoon contest in Garland, Texas, earlier this month that was attacked by two Muslim men.

“Is it right to kill someone who insults Muhammad?”

“Yeah,” said the woman in the pink hijab. “Because she is just, she had her religion, I understand, but she shouldn’t pick on the prophet, you know.”

“So you understand why people would want to attack her?”

“Yeah,” the woman stated.

Would you rather live in America or Somalia?

The interviewer asked one final question: If they had a choice, would the Somalis rather live in America or back in Somalia?

“I’d rather to live in a Muslim country with my people,” the young man with the Brooklyn Nets cap said without hesitation. “I’m not Americanized. I just speak fluent (English) and I’m articulate, and I can articulate what I’m trying to say. That’s about it. But as far as that my culture and my preferences and everything, it’s still Somali, you know what I mean?”

“I would rather live in Somalia,” said the man in the sunglasses.

“For me, I think Somalia,” said the woman in the pink hijab.

‘We have a terror recruitment problem in Minnesota’

U.S. Attorney for Minnesota Andrew Luger, at April press conference said Minnesota “has a terror recruitment problem” involving the local Somali population but didn’t say how the Somalis got to Minnesota.
U.S. Attorney for Minnesota Andrew Luger, at April press conference said Minnesota “has a terror recruitment problem” involving the local Somali population but didn’t say how the Somalis got to Minnesota.

The U.S. State Department has distributed about 100,000 Somali Muslims into cities across America since 1991 as part of its refugee resettlement program. In Minnesota, the resettlements, paid for with U.S. tax dollars, have been carried out by Lutheran Social Services, Catholic Charities and World Relief under contract with the federal government.

Andrew Luger, the U.S. attorney for Minnesota, admitted last month following the arrests of six Somali men from his state on charges that they repeatedly tried to book and board flights to join up with ISIS in Turkey and Syria, “We have a terror recruitment problem in Minnesota.”

But in the eyes of some Somalis in Minneapolis, it’s clearly not terrorism to kill someone for criticizing their prophet. It’s just part of being Muslim.

They are taking serious the advice of Omar Ahmad, founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR. Speaking before a packed crowd at the Flamingo Palace on Peralta Boulevard in Fremont, California, in 1998, he urged American Muslims not to shirk their duty of sharing the Islamic faith with those who are “on the wrong side.”

WND reported in 2003 that the newspaper reporter who covered the CAIR event that night, Lisa Gardiner, paraphrased Ahmad’s message by writing, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith but to become dominant.”

Gardiner’s article, appearing in the Argus of Fremont, stands to this day as one of the most stark displays of Islamist intentions by CAIR, whose leaders typically choose their words more carefully when they know a reporter is present.

Muslim institutions, schools and economic power should be strengthened in America, Ahmad said. Those who stay in America should be “open to society without melting (into it),” keeping mosques open so anyone can come and learn about Islam, he said.

“If you choose to live here (in America) … you have a responsibility to deliver the message of Islam,” he told the Muslim crowd.

The Quran, the Muslim holy book, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth, he said.

Why are these people in this great country of ours? Why did both the Bush and Obama administrations decide it was a good idea to let so many of these people into our great nation? Especially after we all saw what they are capable of on 9/11/2001? I guess we just have to follow the money.

Please share if you agree we need to stop letting people come here from nations who hate us…

Muslims Start Praising Allah On Airplane, Didn’t Realize Who Flight Attendant Really Was Until It Was Too Late

TRUMP LOVES THIS!

Published

on

A Muslim couple from Ohio thought it was a splendid idea to chant about “Allah” while looking suspicious while they were texting or playing with their cell phone. That’s about as frightening as yelling “bomb” and twisting the back end of an alarm clock. Everyone knows that you don’t do anything on an airplane that gives people the creeps.

But that’s not what happened the day the Ohio couple was ejected out of escorted off of an airplane while trying to claim they were discriminated against. They didn’t realize the highly trained flight attendant could tell that people around them were feeling very skeptical of the couple’s awkward behavior that sent chills up the spine of just about every passenger who sat near them.

The Cincinnati, Ohio Muslim couple chanted, “Allah” while “hiding” their cellphones from view. This behavior obviously caught the highly trained flight attendant’s attention and made her very “uncomfortable.” For the sake of the safety of both passengers and crew, she urged the pilot to have them removed from the airplane.

You simply can’t act like this on a plane, train, or any mass travel automobile. You freak people out when you do this. Freaking people out gets you kicked off the airplane. That’s a no-brainer. In all honesty, people don’t care who or what you’re texting, but if you’re acting like you don’t want anyone else to see what’s on your screen, then you better understand that people are going to think the worst and be quite weary of your presence on the plane. That’s exactly what happened and the precise reason why this couple was removed. It wasn’t because they’re Muslim, it was because of their shady behavior.

The Delta flight attendant said every time she walked by the couple from Cincinnati, they were texting rather covertly on their phones. The Muslim man and woman also appeared to be sweating profusely according to the Delta staffer. The couple blamed their perspiration on a long boarding wait on the tarmac.

Sweating profusely while everyone else is not? That’s called your nerves are wrecking havoc on your perspiration system because you might be up to no good. Ever give a speech in grade school and were super nervous to do it? You may have sweat bullets. But when you might be up to no good on an airplane and you’re nervous about what might happen, then you might be sweating as well.  If no one else was sweating like this, then I’d have to call shenanigans on the couple whose covert texting and profuse sweating called some well-trained eyes to them.

Everyone else on the plane was forced to deal with the same wait. The other passengers were also subjected to the same “poor air circulation” on the plane, and they did not have beads of sweat running down their faces.

I guess not everyone else was texting covertly either? This doesn’t make sense. Weird texting behaviors, profuse sweat bullets dripping all over your faces, and chanting about “Allah” all paints a horrible picture to most people. We can’t exactly state that these folks are, or were, up to no good for sure, but the presentation of their behavior simply scared people and it’s nothing personal. People have a right to be scared of something when they’re on a huge mass transit vehicle such as an airplane and they see people acting like this. Maybe we’re trained to think the worst, but the behavior people witnessed was quite eerie to the average traveler.

“I was scared because it looked like some random guy was taking pictures of our passports on his personal phone,” said Nazia Ali, the Muslim woman from Cincinnati, after she and her husband, Faisal, were kicked off the airplane.

If you’re scared and think someone is taking photographs of your passports on their personal phone, then why don’t you ask them what they’re doing? If they were really violating your personal space and items, then speak up about it. However, texting like you don’t want anyone to see, sweating like you’re extremely nervous, and talking about “Allah” on an airplane simply won’t get you from point A to B. You’re going to have to step off the flight and think about what just happened and how to prevent it. You’ll have to understand this is not a thing against Muslims, but a thing where you’re scaring the Jesus out of folks and anyone doing this would be removed, regardless of their skin color, sex, or religion.

Anyone who acted like this on an airplane would be removed.

Nothing discriminatory about it, but you know they’ll try and say it was.

BREAKING: They Caved! Official New Muslim Holiday In Full Effect Everyone Is FORCED To Celebrate!

PREPARE TO BE ENRAGED!

Published

on

As Americans, we know that Islam is starting to be all around us. As conservative Americans, we can see it creeping into places that make it toxic and dangerous. However, most of us probably feel like we’ve got a little bit of time to deal with the problem. We see what’s happened in the Middle East and even in Europe and we don’t want that here, but this is America, we’ve got time. Sadly that’s just not the case.

The United States might still have laws that protect innocents from the violence of Islam, but if we’re not enforcing them, they may as well not exist. Our borders are supposed to keep the undesirable elements out, but if we don’t keep those closed, we could let anyone through, and liberals would welcome them with open arms and a debit card to your checking account. We think of that being a problem on the southern border, but what about the North?

According to the Gate Stone Institute, Canada might be the biggest of our neighbors to threaten our freedom from here on out. They’re becoming so very sympathetic to Muslims that Trudeau might even sign in a new holiday, focused not just on Islam, but on how poorly Muslims are apparently being treated in Canada. We might have thought it wouldn’t reach us in North America yet, but we were wrong:

“The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, is being asked by the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM, formerly known as CAIR CAN) to designate January 29 as a “National Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia.” If he does, it is an indicator that the Islamists in Canada have succeeded in their program of political expansion and influence to the point of now being able publicly to manipulate the Prime Minister’s Office. In fact, in Canada, ‘Islamophobia’ comes in only fourth behind crimes against Blacks, Gays, and Jews. Hate crimes against Muslims have dropped, even as the overall number of hate crimes increase, according to the last Statistics Canada reporting.

CAIR CAN/NCCM was founded with the mission of supporting its American parent organization, CAIR USA, which in turn was formed to support Hamas. According to the Hamas Covenant, the group is the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. Hamas is listed as [a] terrorist group by the United States and Canada. CAIR USA was also listed as a terrorist entity by the United Arab Emirates in 2014. They described the listing of these groups as including Muslim Brotherhood front groups, proxies, and fundraisers.

The current Executive Director of CAIR CAN/NCCM, Ihsaan Gardee, has tried to claim that CAIR USA and its Canadian chapter CAIR CAN/NCCM have no relationship. He has made this claim in media interviews to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and while testifying to the Parliament of Canada. This view is misleading. The US State Department has identified CAIR CAN/NCCM as the Canadian chapter of CAIR USA. CAIR USA has repeatedly claimed that CAIR CAN/NCCM is its ‘Canadian office.’ Most tellingly, CAIR CAN/NCCM made the following statement on its own website in 2003 referring to CAIR USA: ‘This Washington-based organization is CAIR CAN’s parent organization.’ That statement was published as part of its ‘A Journalist’s Guide to Islam.’

The Senate of Canada also heard from internationally known Muslim Brotherhood expert Dr. Lorenzo Vidino in May of 2015. In his testimony, Vidino stated that the Muslim Brotherhood has a series of eight to ten front organizations in Canada. Among those he noted were CAIR CAN/NCCM.

If the ‘Islamophobia Memorial Day’ is declared by the prime minister,[sic] it is a clear ‘indicator and warnin’ on how far an Islamist mentality has been developed within the corridors of government. It also will further confirm how deeply Prime Minister Trudeau has continued in his support the Islamist cause on every occasion since his election as a Member of Parliament in 2008.”

Essentially, this religion, and those who stand up for it, are doing exactly what we feared, and that they promised they wouldn’t do. They’re forcing attempting to force an entire nation to make exceptions just for them. The facts of the matter are thought that Canada doesn’t really even have a problem where they’re trying to address one. Again, let’s reiterate that the recent numbers confirm Canada’s supposed ‘Islamophobia’ comes in only fourth behind crimes against Blacks, Gays, and Jews. If you’re wondering, you can probably guess who’s perpetrating the crimes against the Jews. Hate crimes against Muslims actually have dropped even though the overall number of hate crimes increased, according to the last Statistics Canada reports.

There will no doubt be a time when school children will look back and shake their heads at us, wondering how we let ourselves be taken in by a group that has publically promised to kill us for the sake of their religion. The stupidity is astounding.
